FREE wheelin' bike repairs @ Southbank
Brisbane is fast becoming even more cycle friendly - we have taken up arms (or rather wheels) with some European countries and introduced the City Bikes and now you can get your cycle on with the addition of these free to use bicycle repair stations at Southbank.
Just take your bike down there, put it up on the bike rack at the station and change a flat tyre or service your bike with the bike tools!
Admiring them with two British friends, who remarked that they wouldn't last two seconds in London as they do tend to attract vandalism here and there, the sturdy additions are still a welcome addition to the Southbank landscape.
The easily accessed repair stations are located on Little Stanley Street (near Garage Espresso), and on the Clem Jones Promenade (outside the River Lookout Cruise Terminal) - just down from the edible garden.
